    Default [VNC Access] Help with configuring...

    I can use my Mac using VNC on the internet if I have connected my Internet cable directly to my Mac. So, my Mac's IP is: 123.236.10.70

    BUT, when i use my Belkin router, then my WLAN IP is 123.236.10.70 and Mac's IP is 192.169.15.2

    So what IP do I use in the host field..?

    Same story, same IP address. but you have to forward the internal port (the one from your Mac) to the router. Check the routers configuration at NAT -> port forwarding. As you know, opening ports always is a bit risky cause in this case the connection is not encrypted.

    I was a bit busy with development, so havent chacked hackint0sh forums from a long time now..

    Anyways, so how do I configure NAT..? In the Preferences on Mac or on the Router setup page (Using Belkin N1 Vision)..?
    Also, help me to forward port 80 to Mac, so when I enter the IP, it should show my mac "Sites" instead of Router Setup page.

    Thanks.

    You have to configure NAT port forwarding on your router, check the manual.

    same with port 80 of your mac. port forward it on the router. has nothing to do with the setup page of a router. This one should only be accessible from the private network (your local network, never from outside!!!) big security risk otherwise. once port 80 of your Mac is forwarded to the routers port 80 visitor will see your Mac's Webpage when entering the routers external IP address

    hope that helps

    from sitting in an Internet cafe and beeing logged into their hotspot you would
    http://123.236.10.70/ in safari
    or use the above IP number with your VNC client. Like a webbrowser assumes you are asking port 80 VNC does the same with a VNC client it would automatically look at port 5900 (dont know if you need 5800 and 550 aswell)

    Only if you would - for example - forward port 80 of your Mac to port 8080 of your router you would have to type in safari http://123.236.10.70:8080 in your case.

    Once running check with dyndns.com to get a real host and domanname for your fix IP number, it's free.

    hope that helps

    One more: some routers dont provide looping in and out when port forwarding: you may then not be able to access the website with http://123.236.10.70 while you are inside your local network, only from outside. from inside you still can access it via the internal IP of your Mac.
